Reviews for Artane

Matthew · Taken for less than 1 month · July 7, 2022

For Extrapyramidal Reaction "Been on high dose antipsychotics which gave me tremors overtime. Artane significantly improved my symptoms arising from antipsychotics and relaxed both internal (stomach and intestine) which was greatly slowing my food transit and relaxing external muscles ie tremors. Safer than Benzos and non-habit forming. Would recommend"

For Parkinson's Disease "When I take Carbidopa/Levodopa, one of the side effects is a strong chemical odor in my nose, and a chemical or bile taste in the mouth. It might not sound like much, but over time, this odor is punishing and demoralizing. Artane/trihexiphenidyl has greatly helped in reducing the odor issue with the Carbidopa and Levodopa. For now, it has helped improve my quality of life."

For Extrapyramidal Reaction "I've started Artane to counteract the extrapyramidal effects of ziprazadone (generic Geodon). It works to relieve the muscle tremors and spasms."

For Parkinson's Disease "This is a low level medication. It was the first I received prior to moving upward to the Sinemet Family. It only controlled slight tremor of my hand."
